In this edition of the FB-Eye Spotlight, we introduce you to Leader Dogs for the Blind. Aside from the fact that Leader Dogs is one of the oldest guide dog training facilities in the United States, with over 13,500 graduates, this organization has developed a number of curricula that provide Extended Services to persons who are vision impaired, beyond the scope of dog guide travel.
Its GPS Training affords participants the opportunity to unleash the power of the Trekker and Breeze GPS systems to orient themselves to their surroundings.
